We're going to do some research today! We can use this research tracker spreadsheet to keep track of all the various research avenues we'll want to explore: Chem 330 Research Tracker - Fall 2021

CHEM 330 Research

You'll be searching for sources for your Annotated Bibliography, leading up to your Article Review Paper and your teaching presentation.  

You may wish to get started by looking up some more background information about the instrumental method that you'll be researching. 

Depending on the source, you might search the specific term ("Desorption Electrospray Ionization") or you might need to try searching for the broader name of the type of method/instrumental technique that your specific technique belongs to (such as "imaging mass spectrometry").

Some options to start with are reference books (such as the Gale eBooks collection or Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology) linked below.  

You might also consider searching in Primo for a textbook or other ebook describing your technique! You might want to change the 'scope' from 'Collins, Summit, & Articles etc' to just "Collins & Summit" in order to bring back only books. Below are some examples of books that you might find in our catalog.
